The Hamburg imprints will set up shop at the city's BeCool club in October.
Dial Records will throw a label party at BeCool in Barcelona on October 20th.
The night will celebrate the Hamburg deep house institution as well as its more recently founded vinyl-only subsidiary Laid. The Dial imprint was founded back in 2000 by the trio of Lawrence, Carsten Jost and Turner, and has been one of the past decade's most lauded house labels, releasing records from Efdemin and Pantha Du Prince among many others. Laid, on the other hand, was started in 2009 as an outlet for Dial's most admired artists that lie outside of the usual label family.
One of Dial's most recent stars is Roman Flügel, who released his latest album Fatty Folders on the imprint. That album was awarded Recommended status here on RA, and described in the review as "his best work to date." The German DJ and producer will headline the Dial/Laid party. He'll be accompanied by a live set by Laid's Palisade, the deep house alias of Sebastian Kramer, best known for his techno work as Redshape. Local support will come from BeCool resident Guim Lebowski, while DJohnston will play the smaller Redrum room for the evening.
